Dubai Tennis Championships: Dan Evans will face Stefanos Tsitsipas in semis

Dan Evans and Andrey Rublev

Dan Evans will face Greek second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the last four of the Dubai Tennis Championships.
The 29-year-old British number one beat Russian sixth seed Andrey Rublev 6-2 7-6 (11-9) to reach the fourth ATP semi-final of his career.
Tsitsipas, 21, set up the first encounter against Evans with a 4-6 6-4 6-4 victory over German Jan-Lennard Struff.
Serbia's world number one Novak Djokovic will meet France's Gael Monfils in Friday's other semi-final.
Djokovic, 32, eased past Russia's Karen Khachanov in their quarter-final, needing just one hour and six minutes to beat his 17th-ranked opponent 6-2 6-2.
"I'm feeling well and playing well," said Djokovic, who has won his past 19 matches. "I love playing here in Dubai."
World number nine Monfils beat compatriot Richard Gasquet 6-3 6-2 to set up a meeting with four-time champion Djokovic, who has not dropped a set in three quick victories.
Monfils, who has already won titles in Rotterdam and Montpellier this year, is also on an impressive winning streak of 12 matches.
However, he has lost to Djokovic in each of their 16 previous meetings.
"I will go with a new gameplan and see how it works. Sixteen times it was the wrong one so hopefully the 17th one won't be," Monfils said.
